Location

This retreat will take place in Rishikesh, India, which is the best yogic environment and culture in the world. There is something different about yoga in India, especially yoga in Rishikesh. Being close to the Ganges River and waking up to the sun rising over the hills of the Himalayas is something one must experience in this life.

From the confluence of Bhagirathi and Alaknana at Devprayag to the holy city of Haridwar, the Ganga flows with an amazing force and grace. On the left bank lies Rishikesh and the Swargashram area beyong the Ram Jhula. Since ages, this has been the chosen place for saints and yogis for their spiritual practices and it still reverberates with those vibes, which are best experience through an ashram stay.
